5:31 am
aggravated child abuse. however, she was convicted of four misdemeanors. fox's jessica stone is live in orlando, florida with reaction and what is next in this case. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, wisdom. i just want to show you the front of the orlando sentinel. you see a very relieved and teary casey anthony. we have seen so many photos of this woman for the last three years with a variety of emotions and certainly they were very much at play in the courtroom yesterday, holding hands and crying as she heard the verdict. her parents felt differently. they left the courtroom virtually immediately after the three felony counts were ruled not guilty and they actually weren't scene seen again for another five hours. what you think about why, we are all asking the question, how did the jury reach this verdict because it was so stunning to everyone in the courtroom, to all of the media pundits to much of the press covering this. the only insight we have thus far is we heard from an alternate juror who would have heard the case but not been
5:32 am
part of the deliberations and he tells us that simply the prosecution did not meet the bird of proof, that there was simply too much reasonable doubt here and that is something that the defense went to great lengths to prove and time and time again, they would say there is no dna, no fingerprints, no witnesses. and it appears that the jury simply found that to be enough to create that reasonable doubt. we heard from the prosecution that, at the end of date, if we had had that body of young caylee anthony just a little bit sooner, we would have had a better case. those 31 days in which she was missing and unfortunately decomposing made this a difficult case to try. >> prosecutors saying it was tough when it was just skeletal remains to do just that. what happens now and let's start with whether or not she will actually serve any jail time? >> that is a really good question. only the judge knows but she is back here on thursday morning for sentencing on the four counts of lying to police an each one of those caries a
5:33 am
maximum of just one year in jail but she has been in jail for the bet better part of the last three years. it will be up to the judge as to whether she serves more time or walk out of the courtroom after more than thee years in jail and all of this coverage and all of this drama that has caused her family, that could happen on thursday morning. and getting back to the anthony family for a second, wisdom, they were very clear. they are not happy with this defense. they called this defense in a statement, quote, baseless and that is a father who has been accused of molesting his daughter, of having an extramarital affair. this has taken its toll on the greater anthony family. it will tax a lot of time for them to heal. >> let's talk about the fallout from some other aspects of this. the prosecutor is leaving after this case. >> that was another bombshell that dropped just about three hours after we heard that verdict when you thought your
5:34 am
jaw couldn't drop any further. you have the co-counsel here who gave really the most compelling parts of the prosecution's closing arguments over the weekend, came across very strong, hammering home the evidence, many people found him to be very believable but he did have a circumstantial case. again, no fingerprints, no dna, no witnesses. he reting thursday, the same day that casey anthony could conceivably go free. >> our reaction here i think much like the rest of country but for you being there in the heart of thin, just as you were roaming around orlando last night, everybody still talking, jaws dropped there as well? >> oh, my goodness. you looked around at your colleagues after covering this and the expectation was that she would be found guilty of at least one of these felony charges. many people felt she wouldn't get murder one because of the question of the death penalty and premeditation. very difficult for the jurors to make that decision. there were three lesser included charges they could
5:35 am
have considered which would have given them the opportunity to still send a very strong message that they felt she had something to to with her daughter's death. >> thank you so much. jessica stone live in orlando for us this morning. you will fined latest from florida plus the entire reading of the verdict if you would like to read that for yourself and we want to know what you think about this controversial case. like on facebook and then post your comments. onto some of our other top stories, a virginia mother expected to turn herself in to authorities today after being indicted in the death her 2- year-old son. karen murphy is accused of leaving her son ryan in the van all day on june 17th. police say he is unresponsive when she finally returned. murphy is charged with murder and child neglect. the "washington post" reports she plans to turn herself in at a court appearance in prince

5:48 am
pennsylvania avenue because of this accident activity. we at least have two vehicles involved in this crash. fire and rescue units remain on the scene blocking the portion of minnesota. if you are coming inbound on pennsylvania avenue headed for the sousa bridge, you can get by under police direction. you will find georgia avenue northbound leaving the beltway headed up towards wheaton. that is where we have the construct in place. stay to the right to get through. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. >> thank you so much. starting this morning, several school zone speed cameras in frederick, maryland are operational. mean is you get caught, you get a fine. the cameras are near hillcrest elementary school and governor thomas johnson high school. two other cameras near monocacy elementary began their 30-day warning period yesterday. time to check in with the sports junkies from 106.7 the fan on this wednesday morning. wisdom is with us once again this morning, guys. so one trial ends yesterday, another one starts today. how is it possible that roger clemens could spend more time in jail than casey anthony?
5:49 am
>> don't even get me started on that. >> that is a great question. the american justice system is broken beyond repair as far as i'm concerned if casey anthony can get off on all of the major charges. i was stunned by that along with the rest of the nation. >> i was thinking about roger clemens. but what if he actually is telling the truth? i really don't believe him. he is claiming it is a blackmail deal now and they will go down the alley where they portray brian mcnamee. >> do you also believe in the tooth fairy? >> it is not just him. it was the guy who was shipping hdh to his home.
